Comment on: David Dunster (1945-2019)
The architectural world has lost its leading light, bar none.
Having undertaken two undergraduate degrees - Cultural Studies and Architecture - I had been exposed to the teachings of many academics. Few could come remotely close to David and it has been an absolute privilege in the years after graduation to call him my friend.
I cannot fully express the profound impact that David has had on me, both academically and personally. His absolute and utter irreverence towards rules, hierarchies and anything else that puts things in their places will never be forgotten and I can assure you David that I will keep that torch alight for you.
My thoughts are with David's beloved Charlotte and Arthur at this time.
In other news, privileged homeless people across London have been flocking to the offices of ZHA having caught wind of some "key parties".
As a Liverpool resident and staff member of the RIBA NW office, I am delighted to see such these building typologies being so brilliantly modified. Plenty more of the same please!
